I see no performance or price improvement over the course of the last few years. I guess, thi is the limit for this technology.

There are higher UHS class standards and faster Flash cards are in the works. Although they need an extra row of pins to operate:

"UHS-II cards, defined in Version 4.0, further raise the data transfer rate to a theoretical maximum of 312 MB/s using additional row of pins"

So basically we are coming to the peak speeds for UHS-I and UHS-104, but while we are near the theoretical speeds of 104MB/s read we aren't close in write speeds yet and to me that is when we are at the limit!
